After 8 months of work, we are thrilled to officially re-launch the MUCH bigger and better web site. Those who are interested in the history of the Regiment during the First World War will find lots of information including hundreds of photos not seen by the public until now.

The 15th Battalion (48th Highlanders) of the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) was created at the outset of The Great War 1914-1918 with most of its original members coming from the 48th Regiment (Highlanders) of the Canadian Militia.

The Memorial Project was initiated in 2007 to commemorate all those who served in the 15th Battalion, especially the 1,467 who gave their lives during The Great War. The project team is headed by a former Commanding Officer of the 48th Highlanders BGen (Ret’d) Greg Young OMM, MSM, CD.

Some of the features of the new site include:

Have a look at some archives including ‘record of service’ cards, nominations for honours and awards, the nominal rolls, the battalion daily orders and much more.

If you believe that you can help in any way honour the memory of those who served, read how you can support us.

Also take a look at the Museum site where you will find a page dedicated to each member of the 15th Battalion as well as many original archival materials and artifacts…

Both sites are evolving rapidly so check back often and spread the word: suggest to others that they register on the Regimental web site so they will learn about new content on our various sites.
